If you're looking for training, wrt Ubuntu, especially for a group of folks, 
I'd strongly urge you to contact Canonical's sales folks directly and ask.
They may (not...) be able to arrange a trainer if sufficient interest is shown.

In general terms tho, if you can get training on Redhat, or indeed any other 
linux, you'll get most of the basics covered that way. Just the few (minor) 
differences will throw the odd spanner your way.

Full Disclosure: I work for Canonical.

HTH, such as it is.
